>> she was taking part in the spring break party near uc santa barbara. she disappeared friday night. a jogger discovered her body at 8:00 saturday morning, floating in the water. some surfers saw her body right after that. >> said that it looks like her back was broken and black and blue. it was really sad. >> it has gotten so routty that police blocked off the beach. so young people mob the streets of the town instead. in fact, just hours after jazelle's body was discovered, several people were hurt after a downtown balcony collapse. one person was taken to the hospital. 23 arrests and 71 criminal citations this weekend. for everything from fights to public intoxication. several hundred people gathered here at santa rosa high school
tonight. this is where she graduated less than a year ago. t me show you pictures. this was the vigil tonight. people holding candles and telling stories and just standing here in gut wrenching disbelief at the loss of jazelle. the girl with a gorgeous smile. that girl who always lit up the room. her sister says, you know what, she touched so many lives. >> she recently told us she woke up every morning to be happy to be alive. she loved what she was doing and what direction she was headed in life. we take sol lis in that and hope you can do the same. >> it's not clear what killed jazelle. the sheriff's department tells us they are going to do toxicology tests. they could take several weeks. reporting live in santa rosa, kpix5. >> those powerful winds aren't just causing problems here in the bay area.
they are driving a 50-acre wild fire in venturea county. the fire appears to be burning away from homes. firefighters have yet to establish any containment lines. back here in the bay area, the winds were strong enough to uproot trees. one took out a backstop at park side square and just across the field, another fallen tree toppled into a house. that homeowner was lucky, the owner of this was not. the pickup bed took the brunt of the fall. >> and in san francisco, so much sand blew in from ocean beach. the city had to call in bulldozers to clear the great highway and tonight, those still working to do just that. these are live pictures from lincoln way where the great highway is still closed at this hour. all the way south to skyline boulevard. more on the wind and what is next, here is paul. >> this was an 18 hour wind event, started at midnight and
didn't begin to let up until 6:00 this evening. these are the peek wind gusts. check out san francisco. a good reason why all that sand was blowing, 75-mile per hour wind gusts. at sfo, a 60-mile per hour wind gust. even cupertino, 60 miles per hour. a lot of things came together to cause this. strong high pressure off to the west. what is, is a tightly wound up area of low pressure, which passed just overhead, leaving the strong high and the strong low, we were right inbetween those, which gave us strong winds. low pressure area is moving away so the winds continue to relax tonight. those winds are coming out of the north. this is april and we'll be down close to the 30s in livermore, redwood city and fremont and 43 for san jose. those staple winds are going to be turning a different direction. wait until you find out when we hit the 80s. >> thank you. drivers listen up.
if you're using phone for gps, you can still get a ticket. using mapping functions while behind the wheel is a moving violation on par with texting and driving. a california court just upheld a ticket a guy got for looking at a map. the ruling goes the extra mile to say any activity that could be distracting, falls into the no texting law. also tonight, president obama made another direct plea for action on a set of gun control measures. his comments came in hartford, connecticut, with he was joined by a dozen family members from the sandy hook school shooting. >> the day newtown happened, was the toughest day of my presidency. but i got to tell you, if we don't respond to this, that will be a tough day for me, too. because -- because we have to expect more from ourselves. we have to expect more from
congress. we've got to believe that, you know, every once in a while we set politics aside. we just do what's right. >> after that speech, the president flew back to washington with those sandy hook family members on board air force one and tomorrow those families will begin a lobbying campaign on capitol hill. the u.s. navy is about to go to sea with a new kind of weapon. a laser. and it could be a game changer. cbs news reporter, david martin, gives us a closer look at it. >> you can't see the laser beam, but that's what is hitting this unmanned drone. burning into it like a blow torch. the beam was fired from a u.s. navy destroyer. >> this will be the first real word deployment of directed energy weapon. >> according to rear admiral, chief of naval research, it will be deployed in the persian gulf where iron iranian
speedboats harass u.s. navy ships. >> if we have to provide some type of weapon system, this will be the system. >> this is what the laser can do to a motor. the beam is able to stay on its target despite the bobbing of the waves. turn down the power and it can fire a warning shot or blind a spy camera trying to take pictures. >> we can dazzle that sensor and degrade it completely. we can almost turn it off. >> laser won't work against high speed targets, and bad weather can distort the beam. but it cost $40 million to develop and build over six years and has the potential to revolutionize both the economics and technology of warfare which today relies on weapons like the side winder missile at half a million dollars per shot. >> it's about $1, it's a little
less than the u.s. dollar. compared to something that right now may take thousands of dollars, maybe a million dollars. think of that for a second. >> the laser, a weapon which shoots out at the speed of light is due to arrive in the persian gulf next year. david martin, cbs news, the pentagon. a mirror to the reagan era in the united states. it was very much the thatcher era in britain. the divided legacy of the iron lady. lottery players are loving it. what power ball means for california and one lucky winner. >> as humans, we probably take a toll on wind life and if i can pay it back, i'm going to do it. >> one more bid of fallout from that wild night of wins. baby owls back in their nest. ,,
